On May 7, clashes began between Israeli forces in the West Bank and Jerusalem and civilians as the latter were protesting forced displacement, particularly from Sheikh Jarrah in Eastern Jerusalem, and assaults on worshippers in Al Aqsa Mosque. And, on May 10-20, Israel shelled and carried out airstrikes against Gaza Strip. The violence and aggression across Palestinian territories incurred 243 deaths, including 66 children, and 6,039 injuries, as reported by the Palestinian News and Information Agency (WAFA).


In Gaza Strip where most deaths occurred, injuries stood at 1,910. In the West Bank, 441 Palestinian protesters were shot with live rounds, and 172 were shot with rubber-coated bullets among other injuries caused by tear gas, and beating up. As for Palestinians who got detained in Jerusalem and the West Bank, the figure is 850.


The strikes also caused the destruction of more than 2,000 residential units in Gaza Strip while 15,000 others were partially damaged, according to AP. As a consequence, 100,000 Palestinians lost their homes, including 50,000 who fled from the North to the South of Gaza Strip. 


Further, 31 educational establishments, including schools, colleges, and vocational training centers were demolished.


On the other hand, Magen David Agom announced that since the beginning of the "Fence Guardian" operation on May 10, 675 Israelis got injured. Moreover, the Israeli Army announced that 12 Israelis got killed, including two children, two women, and a soldier.


On May 15, the Israeli forces struck a number of towers in Gaza Strip. One of those housed the offices of a number of media outlets.


On May 14, power went off in most areas of Gaza Strip because of the Israeli aggression carried out not just from land and air but also from sea as Israeli battleships struck the shores of Shatea El Sudaneya northern Gaza.
